This actually sounds like a lot of fun! :D

How will you determine the winners of contests and all that though?

Well, I would only be there for things like judging contests and other random events (including the bits of action) so depending on the posts for the contest and the quality of them, the best post would win!

I'm sure there's people who would be interested in that ^^ Aerion borrowed some stuff from GoT, after all.

True, NPCs can be useful for that too, but I believe having your own character makes it simpler. Besides, it's boring to just sit back and watch others enjoy the RP you made~
I agree with this, except for the last part; I find it really enjoyable to see other players take action in the world that I've created and nudge them along with NPCs and stuff 8D But often I think the RP I've made sounds so good that I can't resist creating a main character for myself too xD

Sounds really fun! Don't think we've had a pure coordinator journey RP before.

It's not a dark thing that you're becoming more active ;D

Okay, I've decided to set up the Contest RP, and I'll probably come here occasionally when I need ideas or when I've finished. Wish Me Luck!!

It is when the only reason you have more time is because your boyfriend dumped you because he didn't like you anymore like that. ._.
For the first . . . uh, the next week or so, I'm not sure if that will actually give me more time or hinder my activity, lol.

And I am working on a really poor map of the region in my pokemon x medieval magic roleplay, Olyssia.

@gimmiepie - I'll check it out. d;

Hello, everyone! I figured this would be as good a place as any for introductions in the RP corner. After the closure of a RP community I had been a part of for some time, I have been on the lookout for a new place to get my RPing fix. Stumbled upon PC and it really garnered my interest after a brief perusal. I've been RPing for a few years now and hope to jump in here soon. Now, just to find one I want to join.

As to the current topic set, so I'm not completely off it. I really like when GMs take part in their RPs and many times, I prefer they do. It gets them more invested and develops a sort of kinship between themselves and the other players.

Welcome, Scrippy! (Sorry if you don't like the nickname.) Nice way to make a first post.

There are plenty of active RPs available to join!

Shameless plug time, people!

Pokémon Fallout and Hoenn RéBURST are both always looking for new and active players!

Fallout is in a dystopian future of the Sinnoh region, where children are able to fuse with the spirits of Pokémon.

RéBURST is a journey RP, still in the semi-early stages, where Pokémon trainers and Burst Warriors (that fuse with Pokémon by way of a Pokéball-like item called a Burst Heart) collide.

Nice to meet you! Good first impression.

If you're into Zelda, I run HYRULE: The Golden Era. Pretty much Sandbox style RPing though I'm throwing in events at times.

I've been wondering: there's been often talk about what can attract you to a RP, but, I'm just wondering:

What discourages you from joining certain RPs? Is there factors that you would consider an RP to be... not very attractive?

Hmm... Theme. If the RP is based on a series, show, game, or something you already have no interest in, why would the RP? On top of that, people tend to avoid RPs they don't know much about (for example, there are people who avoid my HYRULE RP because they don't know very much about Zelda). I suppose the quality of the first OOC post can also have a big effect on peoples' interest or disinterest in an RP.

There's also the fact that different people like different kinds of RPs, such as Sandox, Linear, Adventure, or Journey Roleplays.

Oops, I said 'journey'. I wonder how long Red's will take to get here.

You . . . were serious? >.> Oh my. Can't wait to see this, lol.

Ah, I don't know. Type of roleplay, what it's about, how well the story is crafted, the quality of the GM and the original post (a bad OP will portray the RP badly, and vice versa) and a bunch of other factors. I wouldn't say too much discourages me, unless I don't like the story, how it's handled or the GM handling it. It is more of a matter of "How will you gain my interest?" Basically, if it doesn't sound interesting, you don't feel like the RP itself will be any better, unless you think you can write your character's individual story interestingly using the basics of the RP.

So . . . yeah, lol.

Okay, my Magic x Pokemon medieval roleplay is coming along. I have a low-quality map drawn up, so . . . I guess I'll post that later when I have a basic story synopsis or whatever for you guys. <.<

Hum. You mean like the first post? Nah. Perhaps if I think that the GM has no sense of structure and wording, I won't really be inclined to join. But more than general neat formatting in the sense of proper paragraphing, spaces and perhaps some titles here and there to tell what's what in the post, I'll never require. I just want to see that the GM knows how to organize and plan things :3

Youkai academy is looking for three new members!

Please join us! And Lilizuki's local mini bar in the OOC thread c:



What discourages me to join a Roleplay… well, if it's a RP about a certain anime or game (other than Pokémon) I don't know much about, then I need a lot of information from the GM but 9 out of the 10 times I won't join it anyway. It also discourages me when a RP has bad grammar and I mean… very bad. If there are a lot of RPers joining from whom I know they have a dislike towards me, it can make me stop from joining too, but that's only if it's more than one.

It happened before that a certain person left a RP because I was in it and he noticed later, this is what i'm trying to prevent.

I don't have a dislike towards anyone though~ c:

The kind of people in it, and the way the original post is formulated. It has to look... attractive. Like, I want to a good plot in case I don't know what the heck you're talking about. And I don't really like it when I'm looking at other people's SUs, and the only ones there are short and under developed, and those are accepted.

SINCE IT'S SHAMELESS PLUG IN TIME (or at least was), LEMME HELP YOU THAR. The Children Are Hunted is looking for new players. Because it feels stale right now, sad to say... and I've been inactive (midterms, and...), cause I'm used to making extremely long posts there. And I'm formulating a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon RP. I just need to get it on paper... or Google Drive.

IN other news, I'm curious, what would you like to see in an RP that you haven't seen before? Really, anything from plot to mechanics, just what would you like to see? What are you hoping to find in one?

Sorry if I overused the bold. I think I did.

I rarely feel discouraged when it comes to roleplays, but the one thing that makes me feel really discouraged is actually the demand for activity. If there's a roleplay that demands a ton of activity (i.e. YOU MUST POST TWICE A DAY OR GOODBYE etc) it's...really not my cup of tea. I mean, activity is awesome, but I really want a roleplay that can fit my busy schedule, and not be bragged or pestered every time to get a post in. lol

I agree with the two members who said structure in first post and the quality of the posts. Those two seem to fit my criteria. lol

Hello all!
Now I will start with an apology for my absence and its rather sudden occurrence! My uni work load really crept up on me last semester and resulted in my leaving with little in the way of an announcement. Cannot stress how sorry I am for that (especially to the GMs of RPs that I was involved in...luckily I don't think I was involved too heavily in any at that point).

I am obviously returning to Pokecommunity thanks to my exams now being over and the work load having lightened considerably as we move through to new modules. This time I wont be joining quite as many RPs (I begin work on my dissertation in the near future so as much as I'd rather be rp'ing than writing dis proposals I sadly cant). So...Hello to anyone new(er) here and hello again to those I left behind. Glad to be back!

Well I would like to introduce myself to the Rp corner. I've been in a wolf rp in the past and am working up a character for a Good Omens rp on tumblr, other than that I'm still pretty new to rping in general.

Hopefully snagged the last spot in thread earlier.

Welcome back, Arctos! Hope you find a RP you really want to stick with without overloading yourself now :)

Welcome to the RP Corner, EvilSkittles! RP on tumblr, eh? I don't know what that's like but the fine thing about this place is that we often get people over who have RPed in many different ways and who can bring something new to the section. Still, make sure to read the rules and helpful stickied threads and I'm sure that you'll realize really soon how we do RPing here :) If you want to find a new RP to join, you can check out the Roleplay Library. See you around!

Maybe, as long as you begin posting in MAO again :3

I'm actually considering scrapping my character there and begin GMing more, with NPCs and whatnot. Because it seems like the sandboxiness of that Johto was a bit overwhelming to most.
